Off-Campus Housing: Finding off-campus housing is basically up to the student, but the school does sometimes post listings to a bulletin board by the cafeteria and online. Most housing is at least fifteen minutes away. Landlords are most of the time lenient and willing to work with students, but prices remain pretty high. I looked at off campus housing and it was in a great location close to a good number of places to eat. The landlord put safety first and had outside security lights and cameras put up.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rumor has it that living off campus is ten times better than actually living on it. Students who choose to live off campus have to go through a long, tedious search for an apartment, but once they find a suitable arrangement, they're happy not to be living on campus anymore. Generally, houses and apartments near school are always new or in good shape. Since Dallas is an upper-class area, off-campus housing meets the upper-class standards. Those who live off campus say it is worth the effort of finding roommates and getting all of the proper paperwork filled out.

On-campus dorm policies are strict, so living off campus provides a more independent lifestyle. Off-campus housing is also cheaper than the dorm prices ($6,000 to $8,000 per year). Country Club Apartments are popular with students, as they are safe, clean, and provide a welcoming environment. The only other people that live at the Country Club Apartments, besides students, are the elderly. These apartments, and most popular off-campus housing, are just right down the road from campus.
